EXCEL aims to increase student success in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) during the transition to university life by connecting UCF students, faculty, and staff in STEM disciplines, and creating a learning community to support discovery and engagement. Science and Engineering subjects require that students have a strong mathematics foundation. EXCEL is structured to help students hone their math skills to easily master material in their STEM discipline and gain access to critical path courses for a timely graduation.
